In this infectiously lively reworking of a Hebridean folk tale, Hugh Lupton tells the story of two friends, Pirican Pic and Pirican Mor, who fall out over a pile of walnuts. One has eaten the other's share. 'I'm going to find a stick and whack and thwack you for that!' says Pirican Mor. But revenge is not so quick or easy as it seems. The tree directs him to an axe, the axe to a stone, the stone to water, the water to a stag...soon the whole landscape is caught up in the tale, and Pirican Mor is drawn further and further from his moment of fury.
